Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Announced

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 currently outpacing the competition in the high-end smartphone landscape, Samsung has now introduced the Galaxy S4 mini – a mid-range smartphone for those who prefer a smaller device at a lower price point. While the name may imply that the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is simply a miniaturized S4, the device specs are a far cry from what you’ll find in Samsung’s flagship Android device.

Here go the rest of the key specs:
